Top 10 design features of the world's largest yachts

Palladium and tender

Exact-replica tenders

96 metre Palladium has a matching tender

Limo tenders are understandably popular, as they are able to shuttle owners and guests to and from shore while offering protection from wind and water. Yachts like the 95 metre Blohm & Voss Palladium and the 85.6 metre Derecktor superyacht Aquila (ex-Cakewalk) take the concept up a notch as their owners commissioned tenders to complement and exactly match the mothership’'s styling.

Palladium has two 10 metre tenders (capable of 40 knots, no less) built by Cougar Marine to specifications by Michael Leach Design, who also styled the yacht.

Aquila has an 11 metre Vikal limo tender styled by Tim Heywood, who also designed Aquila herself. Then there'’s Blohm & Voss Motor Yacht A, with three distinctly different tenders, one being an 11 metre craft with lines penned by Philippe Starck to match his equally different vision for A.
